Swift version: 5.2
By default the iOS Simulator shows whatever the time is on your Mac, but you can use Xcode’s
simctl command to override that with a custom time.
For example, Apple always uses 9:41am in their screenshots, because that was the time the original iPhone was announced. If you want to get the same thing in your simulator screenshots, use this command:
xcrun simctl status_bar "iPhone 11 Pro Max" override --time "9:41”
You should replace the simulator name with whatever device you want to change.
Tip: The time shown is just a string, and can be whatever you want. You could use --time “twostraws” for example, and that would work just fine.
